Cathemeral, I really admire you.  You are in a difficult situation but you so seem to have your head together.  Hold that head high.  Don’t give anyone the power to denigrate you or diminsih your relationship.

They are very controlling and very religious. It will be difficult but you and your fiance need to stand up for yourselves. If you let in-laws like this control the wedding, they will try to run your life. 

My husband and I eloped to get away from our mothers. They were both trying to force us to have a church wedding. My husband and I are not religious so we refused. I was raised Catholic but I abandoned the Church years ago.  

My Mother-In-Law hates the fact that her son married a black woman but we don’t give a fuck. She is the kind of person who needs to be in control of everything in order to feel relevant in her adult sons’ lives. When my Mother-In-Law doesn’t get her way, she becomes belligerent and insulting. We don’t allow our parents to intimidate or control us. 

Your fiance needs to stand up for you to his parents. They need to be civil and cordial, which includes not making rude comments about your illness.
